Brighter strategies. Better process. Brighter results.
Our comprehensive and inclusive strategic planning process began with conversations and data collection with our stakeholders, including focus groups and surveys with our clients, staff, and other key members of the Cornerstone Montgomery community. We asked them about our strengths, our problems, how they would like to see us grow, their trust in us, and our organizational culture. With the expertise of our consultant at Brighter Strategies and the Executive Management Team (EMT), we analyzed this data and identified key opportunities for the future that builds on our strengths and solve our problems.
Some of the key takeaways from those conversations included:
Our result after two EMT retreats and a joint retreat with our Board of Directors is a revised Mission and Vision statement, revised Values that reflect our intention around diversity, equity, and inclusion, and five bold Goals articulating where we need to refocus our energy into the future. We were intentional in our strategic planning process to focus on big areas of change, rather than outlining the excellent work we do now that is core to our mission, and that we will continue to execute with the same level of vigor.
